Get the Look: RBG’s Statement Necklace

It was picture day for the Justices, and true to form, The Notorious RBG chose a stunner to embellish her robe. Ruth Bader Ginsburg dons the Pegasus necklace from Stella & Dot.

The jewelry site touts the piece has been seen on Kathie Lee Gifford, Kim & Kourtney Kardashian (do they each have one or do they share?), and Shay Mitchell. Time to update that description folks.

The $198 statement bib necklace is made from intricate gold feathers hand sewn in India to silk organza cascade. I think I need one. Will the sellout be as swift as a Kate Middleton L.K. Bennett nude pump or Meghan Markle Club Monaco dress? Not taking the chance.

Get the Look: Our Cape Cod Patio Refresh

Wayfair Summer Living Sponsored Post Banner

I am lucky that I get to spend summers on the Cape. Even luckier that I work from home, which means I can work at the beach, on the sofa, or if the weather is just right, on the patio.

We have a couple of really solid teak chaise lounge chairs that we bought years ago when we lived in D.C., which have held up beautifully. But the hunter green umbrella and navy cushions, never looked quite right, so I took this opportunity from Wayfair to update the outdoor patio decor.

Wayfair Summer Living Cape Cod Patio Refresh

The starting point of the new color scheme, is the new turquoise color market umbrella. Our exterior windows are actually this color (for real), so it is a really fun touch.

I swapped out the cushions on the teak chaise lounges for  neutral grey ones. (There’s also an upstairs deck with an old lounge that desperately needed a cushion – we went with a pale green/blue spa color up there.)

Tired of the hard-lined geometric trellis patterned outdoor throw pillows, I opted for more organic shape patterns, as well as global-inspired patterned throw pillows.

Finally, some new planters add structure and color that ties back to the flowers along the rail. Given we’re on the Outer Cape and not California, I didn’t go for the full-on outdoor room thing, with a rug and lights. Because, seriously, thunder storms are just too frequent. It’s trouble enough to drag the cushions indoors.

The patio looks really cheerful. Now, if only the mosquitos would disappear.

Get the Look: 20 Dresses Under $500

It’s the season of graduations, weddings, and cocktail parties out on the patio; you know you’re going to need at least one new summer dress. I always feel much less stressed buying a new dress at the beginning of the season, when there are plenty of sizes and styles, and more importantly, no real stress to find something.

Here are 20 summer dresses, all under $500 (many much less expensive than that), appropriate for celebrating in balmy temps. A number of these summer dresses can be easily dressed up or dressed down, depending on your footwear and accessories. I’ve included a number of silhouettes appropriate for varying body types, and tried to avoid the abundance of flounces that are everywhere this season.

Selections include affiliate links to pieces from StyleCarrot sponsors, but are all my own choices.
